SSX Online Pass explained

EA Sports have cleared up confusion regarding their online pass for SSX.

Yesterday, screenshots emerged of a prompt screen for inputting the code. Later on, this was bizarrely denied.

Now, we have clarification, and if you purchase SSX pre-owned, you will actually be able to play online. However, any credits earned from these events will not be activated until you have purchased the pass. It’s a step in the right direction though; they’re not making it mandatory, so everybody can experience the basic game functions.

Here’s the full statement from EA:

“In SSX, players without an Online Pass are able to compete and play in both of SSX’s online game modes, Explore and Global Events with no restrictions. In Global Events, the top finishers from each event are awarded with in-game credits.

These in-game credits earned during play will not be awarded to the player if they do not have an Online Pass; these credits will be stored so that at any time, if a player redeems an Online Pass code, all the credits that they had previously earned in Global Events will be immediately awarded to them.

Economy balance makes it possible to unlock all available content and allows you to participate in all event drops across both Explore and Global Events, with credits earned solely in Explore.”
